The Bismarck, North Dakota Tribune has this story about the Libertarian Party’s ballot access lawsuit. The case is Libertarian Party of North Dakota v Jaeger, 3:10-cv-64, in U.S. District Court. The case challenges the restrictive procedures for a minor party to place its nominees for state legislature on the November ballot. North Dakota has not had any minor party legislative candidates on the general election ballot, with the party label, since 1976. The minor party that overcame the hurdle in 1976 was the American Party.
